Frequently Asked Questions about Tritium Disposal
Do Your Part - Keep Tritium Out of Our Landfills
Tritium can now be recycled!
Our patented tritium enrichment process enables us to "re-ignite" the spent tritium in later model self-luminous exit signs, resulting in the creation of new signs. By recycling used tritium in this manner, we can prevent this radioactive isotope from entering landfills, where it could eventually seep into the ground and contaminate our water supply.
Any tritium that we are unable to reuse is disposed of in accordance with the regulations outlined by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, as well as local, state, and federal guidelines. By utilizing our professional disposal services, you can rest assured that your tritium exit sign will be disposed of safely, responsibly, and in compliance with all relevant regulations.
Why people choose us?

- NRC-Licensed recycling facility.

- Save big when you buy replacement tritium or photoluminescent signs through Lighting Source.
- We dispose all tritium, from standard UL exit signs to mini aircraft models and even tritium watches!
